Back in the Saddle again

Well now that I'm connected back at home I can begin posting again! But don't hold your breath for any sort of regular schedule. Just wanted to let everyone know that we are still at Maple Point EVERY Stormy Monday 9m - to midnight. The show continues to gain in popularity and some of the best and brightest show up and sit in with us on a regular basis!

In addition I have several more weekly shows as well. Every Tuesday Paul Allen on keyboards, Lavelle Jones on Drums and I settle in for a cozy little show over at Mainstreet Bluesroom in Grapevine. With the owners gracious latitude, we are still in the developmental stages of defining our format. We delve into some tasty Jazz and Jazz-Funk via George Benson, Al Jarreau, Anita Baker, Stevie Wonder, Roberta Flack and some R&B via Chaka Khan, Gladys Knight, Isley Brothers and of course we stay the course with Blues with a funky-Jazzy little back beat! mmmmmmmmm good stuff! Come on out and listen in.

Every Thursday you will find me at Bills Hideaway in Dallas performing a duo gig with accompaniement. This is a gay friendly bar with some of the most ardent music supporters I have ever met in dallas. Not only do they listen intently to the musicians, but many times they can sing better than the performer! Talk about getting my $hit together! You can't go in this room half stepping!

Every Sunday I host a Jam at Bluebird Blues Room in Fort Worth, TX! Every week we have had great turn outs! We are light on Jammers but the shows there have been awesome! To keep things fresh, I invite a different featured performer each month to assist in hosting the Jam. Last month we had Texas Slim at the helm and of course he did an awesome job! This month is the Blues Jam Prince - Hashbrown Callway! Hash has been expanding his repertoire with his own weekly spotlight on the artist show and it's a real treat to have him come over each week and lay some of that good stuff on us as well!

So these are the current weekly opportunties to come out and support live music! Something for every one!
